I thought I would start a post on my bar for anyone look for a very easy very cheap bar build. It's build from 3 pallets and a scrap peice of what I believe is high density fiber board. I'm far from a carpenter and this took me about 1 hour to build and like the title says cost $3 which was the price of a box of wood screws.
Couldn't be easier right!?

Here is the finished bar. Might do something with the top still.

Not bad for 3 bucks! That high density fiber board doesn't like getting wet though so you might wanna seal it or something

If you have a line on free pallets, you could always spend some time, de-nail them, and run the boards through a planner, finish them, and actually make something that looks quite professional... [Not knocking down your build]
